Mr JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) . - There seems to me to be another side to the case presented by the honorable and learned member for Parkes. A contract might be made bond fide for the supply of agricultural implements, but, owing to another contract having been declared illegal and void, innocent people might suffer through not having machines supplied to them just prior to harvesting, when they were in immediate want of them. What remedy would they have?

Mr BRUCE SMITH (PARKES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - The honorable member is putting a case in which vendors may have made a contract in contravention of the Act, while the vendees were perfectly innocent.

Mr JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Yes. Under this arrangement great injury may be inflicted upon innocent persons.
